Do you love horses? We have eight miniature horses that make up the Minis on the Move Team of Love ofLittle Horses. We are the "farm team" that serves the Charlottesville/Albemarle area and sister team to A Little Magic. We can always use barn help, grooming help, and welcome individuals interested in becoming our special handlers. Our minis have important jobs to do as supportive therapy and educational ambassador horses. If you think you can help either directly with the horses, the barn, help us administratively, as a social advocate, or as a fundraiser, please contact us. We have a new on-the-farm children's program beginning spring 2020 and need lots of volunteers!
